Aviation SMS Software in Chinese for Airlines & Airport Safety Management Systems

Aviation SMS Software in Chinese for Airlines & Airport Safety Management Systems

The aviation safety management software market has been dominated by airline and airport safety software for the English market. This has been the predominant trend because English is the international business language. 

SMS Pro is an exception. SMS Pro has been translated into Chinese: 
  1. Traditional; and 
  2. Simplified. 

Chinese Translation Completed for Aviation SMS Software

Roman Mikheev, senior software engineer for NorthWest Data Solutions in Anchorage, Alaska stated that, "One of our in-house software engineers is from Taiwan and was in charge of this translating task. Because we are working with two complete language translations, the task requires more work than necessary. Usually, we can translate SMS Pro into another language in approximately two weeks."

SMS Pro's Web based aviation safety management software has been available in: 
  • English; 
  • Spanish; 
  • French; and 
  • German. 

One can switch between languages by simply clicking the appropriate language choice. To learn more about SMS Pro, visit

Next Expected Language for Aviation SMS Software--Portuguese!

Talks are underway with Brazilian companies to translate SMS Pro into Portuguese. This language pack is expected to be released in 2015.

SMS Pro 10-100 is available in English only. NorthWest Data Solutions has four servers around the world that support airlines, airports, flight schools, aviation maintenance and FBOs. Roman Mikheev continued, "...we now have two servers that has multi-lingual support, one in the United States and another in Europe. Interestingly, we had one client who refused our offer to translate SMS Pro into an Indonesian dialect because management wanted to encourage the use of English."

SMS Pro can be hosted on client servers or NWDS servers. Airlines and airports around the world have been using SMS Pro for over five years. 

"Customer service, flexibility, and a complete SMS solution is what customers and consultants find most attractive about SMS Pro," stated Roman Mikheev.
